McAuley Residence is a skilled nursing and subacute rehabilitation facility for residents living with a diagnosed condition or requiring medical supervision. Our facility is located on the Kenmore Mercy Hospital site in the Town of Tonawanda. The physicians, nurses, aides, and rehabilitation specialists at McAuley Residence work with each resident to develop a care plan that best suits their needs and supports overall health.
Assistance with Daily Living Activities – Regardless of age or limited mobility, maintaining independence remains important to our residents. The nursing aides on-site provide assistance with daily living activities – those essential skills that satisfy our most basic needs. From housekeeping tasks to personal grooming habits and daily companionship, we're there to support you when you need it most in your life.
HeartStrong Subacute Rehabilitation – HeartStrong is short-term rehabilitation for patients living with heart disease or recovering from a cardiac procedure. This program was developed in collaboration with cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, and promotes quality of life and effective disease management among cardiac patients. An average stay is about 28 days, after enhancing skills that help patients return home or transition to another facility.
Skilled Nursing for Seniors – Skilled nursing is the highest level of care a patient can receive outside of a hospital. Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and other healthcare professionals provide 24/7 care for residents, especially those who are recovering from an injury, illness, or living with a chronic condition.
Subacute Rehabilitation – Participants in a subacute rehab program have usually been discharged from a hospital or referred by their physician. Our services help short-term residents make a smooth transition back to life after medical care, with the use of therapy and patient education programs. These may include:
